President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s Statement on the Issue of the Tape Recordings
Study Room, Malacañang
(27 June 2005)

Mga Minamahal kong Kababayan,
For the last several weeks, the issue of the tape recordings has spun out of control. Tonight, I want to set the record straight.

You deserve an explanation from me, because you are the people I was elected to serve.

As you recall, the election canvassing process was unnecessarily slow even after the election results were already in and the votes had been counted. I was anxious to protect my votes and during that time had conversations with many people, including a Comelec official. My intent was not to influence the outcome of the election, and it did not. As I mentioned, the election had already been decided and the votes counted. And as you remember, the outcome had been predicted by every major public opinion poll, and adjudged free, fair and decisive by international election observers, and our own Namfrel.

That said, let me tell you how I feel personally. I recognize that making any such call was a lapse in judgment. I am sorry. I also regret taking so long to speak before you on this matter. I take full responsibility for my actions, and to you and to all those good citizens who may have had their faith shaken by these events. I want to assure you that I have redoubled my efforts to serve the nation and earn your trust.

Nagagambala ako. Maliwanag na may kakulangan sa wastong pagpapasya ang nangyaring pagtawag sa telepono. Pinagsisisihan ko ito ng lubos. Pinananagutan ko nang lubusan ang aking mga ginawa at humihingi ako ng tawad sa inyo, sa lahat ng mga butihing mamamayan na nabawasan ng tiwala dahil sa mga pangyayaring ito. Ibig kong tiyakin sa inyo na lalo pa akong magsisikap upang maglingkod sa bayan at matamo ang inyong tiwala.

I took office with a mandate to carry out a plan for the nation. Since that time, I’ve focused on making the tough but necessary decisions to make up for years of economic neglect. We passed a comprehensive fiscally responsible national budget; raised new and necessary revenues to reinvest in the people, and implemented new anti-corruption measures that have led to the highest collection of taxes in history.

Nothing should stand in the way of this work, or the next phase of my reform agenda, which includes new investments in education and social services with our new revenues, and an expansion of our successful anti-corruption and lifestyle checks.

That is why I want to close this chapter and move on with the business of governing.

I ask each and every one of you to join hands with me in a show of unity, to help forge One Philippines, where everyone is equal under the law, and where everyone has the opportunity to use their God-given talents to make a better life.

Our nation is strong and getting stronger. The progress is steady and I ask you to walk with me on this journey to rebuild our great nation.

I remain your humble servant and promise you that I will fulfill my constitutional oath of office to serve the people to the best of my ability.

God Bless the Philippines!

  1. ( the best actress award goes to………….) kayo na

    nya………GLORIAGATE: The Fall of a Nation

    heheheh jok lang ho…
    actually its a nice though’ nakapagsalita na rin sya sa isyu..
    but for my personal opinion, tyrannizes that its not easy, facile to repent
    ika nga nla.. “may katapat na parusa ang pagkakasala”.

    but that’s not meant para ma “IMPEACH” agad si gma..
    kumbaga.. propesyunal dapat ang proseso para maimbestigahan pa nang mabuti.. kanino ba talagang black propaganda nyan??

    its too OBVIOUS,, you “PRO-ERAPS”!! tumahimik na nga kayo…
    “IS THAT THE WAY YOU FEEL ALIVE??!! oh CmOn!!!

    naisip ko lang kase.. what if kung si erap naman na biktima ng wire tap??!
    malamang boses yun nga mga.. (hay ewan!! eheheheeh)

    hinahamon ko ang mga protester.. talunin nyo nga ang edsa dos..
    ayain nyo mga elitista.. mayayaman,..investors na iimpeach si gma..

    cant wait to have the result!! hehhehe

    “peace to all of you”!

  2. But it looks like the elitista.. mayayaman and investors are not interested in doing anything about it. They just want us to “move on.”

  3. ^ yun na nga eh…foreign investors are pro gma!

    kaya aksaya ng oras lang yung ibang opposition
    na halukayin pa ang isyu… lok-bu tlaga..heheheh

    pero hindi basta-basta move on nlang yan..
    gma will take A LOT OF TIME para bumalik sa kanya ang tiwala
    ng sambayanan!

    pero as my opinion, HINDI TALAGA LUMABAG SA BATAS si GMA..

    msayadong “TEKNIKAL” na yung sinusuri nila sa wire tap
    kung sinu sino pa ina-alam na involved..

    WALA NAMANG KA KWENTA KWENTANG BAGAY! pinag aaksayahan
    pa ng panahon..

    mas importante masolusyunan ang JUETENG SCANDAL kesa sa
    GLORIAGATE na yan!!

    haayy.. PILIPINAS.. kailan ka ba uunsad???!!!

  4. Uunlad tayo kapag nagbago na ang mga tao, mula sa pinakamataas sa gobyerno hanggang sa mga simpleng mamamayan.

    uusad ang pilipinas pag mababawasan taong ugali katulad mo, wala kang pakialam sa mahihirap, sabagay elitista ka, e god mo money, selfish.

  8. to i_luv_greenday

    uusad pilipinas pag mababawasan taong ugali katulad mo. you know nothing about masa. if you’re a good observer, ano bang nagyari sa pagkaupo ni gma? let’s face it na kahit sino maupo may negative feedback pero etong nakaupo ngaun GRABEEEEEEEEE!!!

    ewan ko lang it seems na-aamused ka naman sa pro-foreign investors na sinasabi mo. well, kaya pala peso lalong binabagsak ng foreign money. siguro tuwa ka rin baka kasi pera mo dollar.

    obviously pro-gma ka, kaya no wonder pareho kau ugali. same feather huh?

  9. nakakahiya kayo. Alam nyo naman pala na nandaya si gloria, bakit ngayon nyo lang nilabas? Ang sadya nyo ba na magkagulo ang Pilipinas, siguro gusto nong nagpalabas ng tape na maging ” PRESIDENTE “..
    GMA tama yung ginawa mo na ipaalam sa nakakarami na tumawag ka sa comelec…..

  10. gloria alis dyan………nakahihiya ka buti nalang c raul roco…..
    kaya kailangan kay gloria bitayin,impeach yan para hindi tayo mahiya sa ibang bansa….

  11. to the pro gma

    dapat lang umusad ang mga bulsa ng mga pulitico. biro mo para makahabol lang sa bilangan kailangan mo ng 1.5 to 2.0 M (see barbers-garci transcript) na padulas sa comelec.

    para manalo kang presidente kailangan hawak mo ang isang garci na mag-uutos na kumidnap ng family ng mga magwiwitness sa dagdag-bawas.

    the new evat law will solve their personal economic diffculties. a greenday for them.

    tama ang kasabihan na ang mga sinungaling ay kapatid ng mga magnanakaw. you birds of the same feather. an economist who knows not the weight of steel. a religious person who want others see her pray.

    mind you, a persons unguarded gestures speaks louder of the truth. our lips may hide the truth but eyes never tell a lie. ask ur sweetheat.

  12. pusang alas!!!!kung ang intention ng taong nagpalabas ng issue about sa wire tapping ay para sa kabutihan ng bansa bakit ngayon lang nila inilantad sa mamayang filipino?dapat sinabi nila ito sa mas may nakakaalam noong hindi pa umupo si GMA.sa palagay ko pakana na naman ito ng mga politiko.gusto na naman nilang gulohin ang administrasyon ni GMA.hindi po tayo dapat magpadala sa mga taong walang ibang intention kundi ang gulohin ang ating bansa.ang mga filipino naman na makikitid ang utak ay nagrally na pababain sa Malacañang si GMA.sa palagay ba nila yun solusyon sa ating problem? sa tingin ko, hindi! kahit sino ang umupo sa palasyo, wala pa ring magbabago. nasa ating lahat (FILIPINO) po ang solution, nasa ating lahat po ang problema…hindi po yan kaya ng isang tao lang.ang Presidente po ay hindi GOD na kayang lutasin ang lahat ng problem.tao lang po siya. kaya SHE NEEDS OUR HELP!!!hindi po ako maka-GLORIA….maka-FILIPINO po ako… 🙂

    peace po tau~~:-)

  17. deeper sense (reading between the lines)!!

    FIRST:
    garci’s c/p was monitored because someone powerful close to or probably a malacanang insider doubt his sincerity to deliver appropriately winning votes. “WALANG TIWALA” ika nga. Kasi naman they all knew that garci is so easy to corrupt. So they thought of protecting their own interest by ensuring that garci is with them all throughout. “OPLAN BANTAY GARCI.” Chances are, hindi alam ni gma that garci’s c/p was wired kaya she kept on calling him over the hot phone and giving between the line instructions to dagdag-bawas.

    SECOND:
    gma political team believed that the popularity of fpj cannot be taken for granted and they strongly doubted that some inner men were fpj supporters so they started purging left and right not knowing that along the process they had been making cracks on some security aspects. IN THE GAME OF POLITICAL DIPLOMACY THAT MAYBE CALLED “POOR LEADERSHIP”

    THIRDLY:
    so the balloting came to pass and the canvassing followed. during these period the fpj camp and all other camps knew very well that there had been rampant dagdag-bawas but the problem was how to prove. garci likewise knew that that fpj camp was aware so made all means to cover up to the extent saying “kidnapin na ang familya niyan” referring to the fpj supporters. at this point, the fpj camp still were not aware of the c/p tapping.

    FOURTH:
    while the figures of election results were flowing into the board of canvassers in the congress the gma team members started to eyeing for possible appointive govt positions. many expected 1st hand as well as 2nd and 3rd hand promises only to be disappointed. unfortunately the line between isaf and the former nbi deputy came to being. since both were on intelligence net work, they easily came in good terms casually exchanging ideas.

    FIFTH:
    so many are aware of the election frauds but garci was able cover the facts cleanly at some points while others remained smelly. the rest of the odor were taken cared of by the board of canvassers. it came to pass that gma was proclaimed.

    SIXTH:
    the fpj camp remained searching for valid and strong proofs and witnesses to support protest, unluckily fpj died. on the other side several months later while filling up the gratitude, the gma camp, out of professional intrigue failed to fullfil 2nd 3rd hand promises. among these were to isaf and ong.

    SEVENTH:
    ong obtained the tapes of garci’s wired records with intent to study and plan on how it can be used as a tool to make good with gma. the mother tapes were supposed to be returned but somewhere along the process of duplicating and reduplicating, extracting the vital parts, its reproduction became uncontrolled and reached the wrong hands.

    EIGHT:
    Unfortunately some good boys of bunyi obtained an extracted copy. fearing of its bad result, they thought of destroying the veracity of the CD by oblitirating its contents, then presented two versions: the original and obliterated copies to the press. gma may had approved this maneuver.

    in fairness, this is the first time the fpj camp learned about the tapes.

    YOU KNOW THE REST.

  18. greenday?? my user name is my fav. band..
    ano na nmang suspetsa yan.. y using such a word?? god’amn!!

    anyweiz! gma must face the consequence! pro ako sa
    propotional punishment!

    dapat iniintindi na ngayon ang vat na yan!! amp!! parang koreanovela
    yang isyung gloriagate na hindi pa matapos tapos!~~!!!

  19. ang mabuting aral……..

    di naman ako economista, di rin scholar, di rin negosiyante, lalong hindi pari. ako’y isang pobreng mamamayan. pero sa abot ng aking kabatiran ay wala, ni isang bansa sa mundo ang nakarating sa tunay kasaganaan pang-economiya nang hindi dumaan sa madugong aral, e.g. civil war, revolusyon, na kung saan ay milyon-milyon ang namatay. isa-isahin natin ang history ng mga industrialized countries, sometime-somewhere along their past they had a bloody lesson that teaches the citizens to do good and nothing but good for their country, including electing leaders, proper governance, tax payment, government service, even road courtesy, etc…
    the country had its chance during KKK revolustion against the spaniards but was suppressed by the americans. then there was another chance against the americans but the US gave way and granted the pinoys an early independence. edsa 1, 2 & 3 did nothing except to overthrow a person each but no unforgettable lesson was learned.

    not unless we learn from experience how to truly love our country we will generally remain slaves by our own selfish motives. This lesson may be be taught at school or at home but impossible to sincerely learn because the necessary seeds are non-existent.

    ang mabuting aral….

  20. basta ang alam ko, nahulog si gloria sa sarili niyang bitag! wahaha.. malamang, plano niyang ipawire tap si garcilliano kaya lng siya ung nawire tap.. uh-oh! katangahan n nmn kc.. isip kc dpt ang ginagamit eh.. tsk tsk.. [pero, come to think of it, kung maiimpeach siya, cno ang papalit???i think its the bigger problem na dpt paghandaan ng mga pilipino.pano kung di nila gusto ang pumalit? edi, eds nlng ng edsa??? hay nku, wla sa aus! cge n nga.. bhala kau.. di nrin ako mgtataka kung bakit ang daming umaalis d2 sa bansa! foundation palang ng pilipinas bagsak n.. san pa kaya mghohold on ang mga tao db?? ]

  21. great to be great….

    its not enough for the pinoys to just open their eyes, ears and common sense. they must communicate and look way far beyond the horizon. remember, it is the present that shapes the future. THOSE WHO HAVE THE MEANS must lead to express and show for the PASSIVE to understand the process of CAUSATION, e.g. “what causes what up to nth degree.”

    It must be understood that niether the sun nor any heavenly body for that matter rises from or sets at exactly the same spot along the horizon. Each daily path on the celestial sphere relatively changes too and this natural law applies perfectly to the man’s ability to format its destiny.

    For short, the pinoys generally maintain a narrow perspective in life; poor sense of humor; soft spoken; short outlook for the future; self centered and cares less towards others. These matters are taught at schools but very difficult to learn. I tell you, even those who teaches the subject does not necessarily practice the same. As an example look at the legislator who disobeys simple traffic rules and good environmental practice. Why do we have corrupt public servants? Why does the city floods? Why do we experience so much social crimes? Why a gap between the rich and the poor? These cannot be sensibly answered without considering the pinoys as one whole sick body with each part less caring for others. Surely, time will come that the whole body will colapse and I wish you are on hand to witness and participate in the rebirth, no matter on what side you are. But I warn you, thousands or even millions of lives shall perish.

    Then this country shall be great.

  22. di naman aaminin ni GMA kung di sinabi ni Bunye na ang tao sa tape ay si GMA…and di din manggigil ang tao kung umamin agad si GMA…syempre hanap muna sya magandang lusot. Di nyo ba napansin statement nya, nag sorry lang pero madami pa din questions..hayyy..kasi nagmamagaling buking na palusot pa,,,pasaway din si H.E. Sorry GMA ha, president ka eh lahat ng mata nasa u nakatingin so better “DO MORE GOOD THINGS, NOT PURO PA MEDIA EFFECT LANG.” At dapat alam din ng mga alipores na yan na magtrabaho para sa bayan at di para sa bulsa lang nila…

  23. lola glo’s hit song:

    “Let Me Try Again” by: Frank Sinatra

    I know I said that I was leaving,
    But I just couldn’t say good-bye.
    It was only self-deceiving
    To walk away from someone who
    Means everything in life to you.
    You learn from every lonely day
    I’ve learned and I’ve come back to stay.

    Let me try again; let me try again.
    Think of all we had before,
    Let me try once more.
    We can have it all, you and I again.
    Just forgive me or I’ll die.
    Please let me try again.

    I was such a fool to doubt you,
    To try to go it all alone.
    There’s no sense to life without you.
    Now all I do is just exist
    And think about the chance I’ve missed.
    To beg is not an easy task,
    But pride is such a foolish mask.

    Let me try again; let me try again.
    Think of all we had before,
    Let me try once more.
    We can have it all, you and I again.
    Just forgive me or I’ll die.
    Please let me try again.

    what about this?

    En Vogue, Born To Sing

    “Lies”

    chorus
    Lies, lies, using lies as alibis
    Lie’s, lies, just a devil in disguise

    It’s the same game
    Played in so many ways
    Everyone is the victim too
    It’s just a waste of time
    Made for simple minds
    So why do people insist on lies

    I’ll give my life a different way
    Refuse to let myself become a victim
    Getting caught you in a vicious web of lies, they can hurt you
    And destroy you, you watch out for lies, just a devil in disguise

    chorus

    The nation’s leaders as well as teachers
    Practice lies as a way of lie, yes they do
    So think before you speak
    Cause what you sow you reap

    The truth will always come to light
    Will we ever learn one day
    That telling lies always bring to matters
    Misery and sometimes pain

    chorus x4

    rap
    Lies and deceit
    Yes it’s running real rampant
    Communities suffering, yo I can’t stand it
    When we think of lies we tend to think of politicians
    But what about the husband who’s on a mission
    Lying to his wife so he can get it on and get some
    Coming back home with a dumb expression
    Written on a face that he’s guilty as a criminal
    It’s time to change your attitude
    People do you hear me, don’t listen
    To a funky rhyme that’s kickin’ knowledge that we need
    We lie about our hair
    And we know we got a weave
    Politicians lie about the things they’re gonna do
    And everybody’s tale affects me and you
    A smoker lies about the money that he stole
    And a dope dealer never tells you how he got his gold
    I guess what Debbie T. is really trying to say
    When you break it all down we’re all the same

    I’ll live my life a different way
    Refuse to let myself be caught up
    In a vicious web of lies

    chorus x4

  24. Galing sa isang ordinaryong manggawa sa Pilipinas

    the contents may seem a little harsh but very true…. i have always agreed that the middle class (which definitely is properly educated) should wake up and start to be involved…. not as a rallyist…. example, we all know e-VAT will eventually be passed on the consumers, so let’s start educating those who can easily believe in the ad campaign saying it is beneficial to the country when what we should start improving (which is long overdue, anyway) is the “collection” system in our tax system, heavier tax on those who will own a second luxury car (they can afford it anyway) rather than e-VAT, run after lucio, henry, ayala and the gok’s but of course we know why they are not because they finance a candidate during the election…. but this is my point, we do not need to rally, just start with a simple educational campaign so that the gov’t. would know we are not as dumb as what they think we are…. I admire the courage of whoever wrote this message because it is my sentiments as well…. thanks….

    Walang kwenta ang Pilipinas

    By: jawbreaker. (isang ordinaryong office worker na ayaw na magbayad ng tax…ever!)

    Hindi ko na mapigilan ang sarili ko. Sukang-suka na ko sa mga nangyayari sa bansang ‘to! Walang katapusang corruption, walang kamatayang pangbabatikos, pagbabatuhan ng tae at pagpapa-taasan ng ihi ng mga pulitiko sa bawat isa, walang tigil na imbestigasyon ng kung ano-anong isyu pero wala namang matinong resolusyon, walang puknat na pag-aagawan ng kapangyarihan sa pagitan ng mga partido, patuloy na pagdami ng tamad at tangang Pilipino, patuloy na pakikipaglaban ng ideolohiyang wala namang silbi. Ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas, talo pa ang septic tank na hinihigop ng Malabanan – saksakan ng dumi at napakabaho. Kaya hindi nakakapagtaka na ang Pilipinas ang isa sa pinakamahirap at corrupt na bansa sa mundo. Kasi lahat sila bulok, lahat sila walang kwenta. Lahat sila sugapa sa kapangyarihan at sa pera.

    ANAK NG TETENG! !$#%Q!&!* @!!!!!

KUNG SINO ANG NAG-RA-RALLY, SA EDSA, SILA ANG NASUSUNOD. KUNG SINO ANG MAS MALAKAS SUMIGAW PERO WALA NAMANG ECONOMIC CONTRIBUTION, SILA LAGI ANG FOCUS PAG MAY PROBLEMA. SILA LAGI ANG BIDA. KAMING MGA ORDINARYONG OFFICE WORKERS, OFW’S, LABORERS AT IBA PANG NAG-TRA-TRABAHO AT NAGBABAYAD NG TAX – KAMI ANG NAGPAPAKAHIRAP PARA BUHAYIN ANG PILIPINAS. KAMI ANG MGA TUNAY NA BAYANI NG BANSA!!!

    Tuwing nakikita ko ang payslip ko, nag-iinit ang ulo ko at gusto kong maiyak sa inis. Napakalaki ng tax na binabawas sa akin pero ginagamit lang sa walang kwentang bagay ang perang pinaghirapan ko. Lahat ng pagtitipid ginagawa ko para suportahan ang sarili ko, pamilya ko at ang punyetang bansang to. Ni hindi ako makabili ng chicken and spaghetti meal sa Jollibee kahit gutom na gutom na ko. Nag-tya-tyaga ako sa waffle na tig-P10, o kaya pag may konting pera, junior bola-bola siopao sa Mini-Stop sa halangang P20. Eh kung yung pera ko na pinapangbabayad sa tax sa kin na lang napunta, eh di sana nakakapanood pa ko ng sine at least 2 beses sa isang buwan. Nakabili na sana ako ng bagong rubber shoes. Nakapagpagawa na sana ako ng sarili kong bahay. Yung tax na binabayad ko, karamihan nun derecho sa bulsa ng mga corrupt na mga government officials at workers. Habang hirap na hirap akong i-budget ang pera ko, sila naman nagpapakasarap sa mga mansyon. SUV’s at luxury cars pa ang dina-d rive nila, samantalang ako sa pedicab lang sumasakay! (TAMANG-TAMA ULIT!!! HABANG TAYO NAMAN AY NAGPAPAKAHIRAP MAGBAYAD SA NAGTATAASANG PAMASAHE SAMANTALANG SILA EH MAGKAPROBLEMA LANG NG KONTI, BAKASYON NA SA IBANG BANSA)

    P****** INA! PERA KO YANG PINAPAGPAPASASAAN NYO!!!!! Yung tax na binabayad ko, pinapangsuporta sa mga mahihirap. Saan ba galing ang pera pangpagawa ng housing at pagtulong sa mga mahihirap, di ba sa mga manggagawa na nagbabayad ng buwis! Pero karamihan ng mahihirap, kung umasta kala mo inaapi sila ng sobra.

    SA TOTOO LANG NO, KAYA ANG MGA MAHIHIRAP LALONG NAGHIHIRAP KASI MGA TAMAD! Ang daming mga tambay sa kalye na walang trabaho pero ang laki ng katawan. Eh kung sila ba nagkargador sa pier eh di sana may pera sila. (PANSININ NYO YUNG MGA HINIHINGIAN NG MGA OPINYON. MGA TAMBAY NA MGA LALAKI NA NAG-IINUMAN SA KALYE SAMANTALANG WEEKDAY AT GITNA PA LANG NG ARAW.)

    TAPOS WALA NA NGANG PERA, ANAK PA NG ANAK! PUNYETA! LALO NYO LANG PINAPADAMI ANG TAMAD AT TANGA SA MUNDO!!!!! Naaawa ako sa mga batang pakalat-kalat sa kalye at namamalimos. Imbes na nag-aaral, dumadagdag lang sila sa bilang ng mga future criminals sa Pinas. Hindi ako magtataka na yung batang nakita kong namamalimos sa Cubao, pagkatapos ng ilang taon cellphone snatcher na.

    YUNG MGA MAGULANG NAMAN DYAN, COMMON SENSE LANG! HIRAP NA HIRAP NA NGAKAYO SA BUHAY, MANGDADAMAY PA KAYO NG IBA?! PAPARAMIHAN NYO PA LAHI NYO!

    Palibhasa walang mga trabaho at walang pinagkaka-abalahan, kaya nagkakalabitan at nagsusundutan na lang maghapon, magdamag. Sa totoo lang, nakakabilib. Kasi kahit sa ilalim ng tulay o sa kariton lang, nakakabuo pa rin ng bata! Ibig sabihin, maabilidad ang mga Pinoy. Kung gugustuhin, gagawan ng paraan. Kahit sa makipot, mabaho at maduming lugar – SOLVE! Isa pang mga grupo ng tao na nakakainis, yung mga aktibista, NPA at kung ano-ano pang ideological political groups. Sabi nila, mahal na mahal nila ang Pilipinas kaya pinagpalalaban nila ang kanilang mga adhikain.

    PUNYETA! EH HINDI RIN KAYO NAGBABAYAD NG TAX! ANG KAKAPAL RIN NG MGA MUKHA NYO! MGA IPOKRITO! MAHAL DAW ANG PILIPINAS AYAW NAMAN MAGBAYAD NG BUWIS! BAKIT MAY BIR COLLECTOR BA SA GITNA NG MENDIOLA AT EDSA?! MAY TAX COLLECTION BA SA BUNDOK?! WALA DIN NAMAN KAYONG MGA TRABAHO! KUNG MAY TRABAHO TALAGA KAYO, HINDI KAYO MAG-RA-RALLY DAHIL SAYANG ANG SWELDO NYO PAG ABSENT KAYO! PAANO NYO MAIPAPAKITA ANG PAGMAMAHAL NYO SA PILIPINAS KUNG WALA NA KAYONG GAWANG MATINO KUNDI MAG-RALLY AT MAMUNDOK??!!! ISA PA YANG MGA MAYAYAMAN AT MGA ARTISTA, NA NANGDADAYA AT HINDI NAGBABAYAD NG BUWIS. ANG KAKAPAL NG MUKHA NYO! ANG DAMI NYO NA NGANG PERA NANGDADAYA PA KAYO SA TAX!!!! HINDI NYO NAMAN MADADALA SA IMPIERNO YANG MGA KAYAMAN NYO. MASUSUNOG LANG DUN YAN. KAYA LALONG BUMABAGSAK ANG NEGOSYO DITO SA PILIPINAS, KASI MGA NEGOSYANTE MANDARAYA. PATI SHOWBIZ INDUSTRY, BAGSAK NA DIN. KARMA ANG TAWAG DYAN. MGA BALASUBAS KASI.

    Sana magkaron ng POLITICAL AND NATIONAL CLEANSING.

    – Alisin (mas maganda kung patayin na lang) ang lahat ng pulitiko at political families sa puwesto.
    – Tibagin ang lahat ng mapanirang organizations at grupo.
    – Itapon sa malayong isla o kaya i-pwersa ng hard labor ang mga sobrang tamad na mga Pilipino.
    – Ihiwalay ang mga bata sa kanilang mga tamad at tangang magulang upang makapag-aral sila at maturuan na maging mabuting tao at mamamayan.
    – Magkaron ng bagong lider na walang political ties at utang na loob sa kahit sino.
    – At higit sa lahat, dapat tax payers lang ang pwedeng bumoto!

    Kung kinakailangang magka-giyera para magtino ang mga Pilipino, ayos lang. Masyado na kasing matigas ang ulo ng mga tao dito. Gusto ng kalayaan, pero hindi naman handang panagutan ang responsibilidad ng pagiging malaya. Meron daw pinaglalaban na prinsipyo at adhikain pero takot namang mamatay para dito. (Sa mga nakaka-alam sa anime na Gundam Wing, yan ang inspirasyon ko sa new Pinas hehe. I love you Zechs! I love you Treize!)

    Hangga’t hindi nagkakaron ng radical change, patuloy na walang kwenta ang Pilipinas at patuloy na magiging tanga ang majority ng mga Pilipino. Sa dami ng nag-mi-migrate na Pilipino sa ibang bansa, dadating ang panahon na minority na lang ng population sa Pilipinas ang may utak. Yung mga magagaling na Pilipino, malamang maubos na. Sobra na kasi silang na-fru-frustrate at na-de-depress sa mga nakikita nila. Ilang taon pa at aalis na rin ako sa Pilipinas. Wala kong balak na magkaron ng pamilya sa isang bansa na hindi pinapahalagahan ang kontribusyon ng mga taong tunay na bumubuhay dito. Kawawa naman ang magiging anak ko kung dito sya mabubuhay. Sa totoo lang, broken hearted ako. Minahal ko din ang bansang ito. Pilit kong pinagtatanggol kahit bulok. Nakarating na ko ng ibang bansa, pero pinili kong bumalik. Pero ngayon, ayoko na. Suko na ko. Sayang lang ako sa bansang to. Simple lang naman ang hiling ko. Gusto ko lang mabuhay ng tahimik at maayos. Gusto ko na kahit paano eh maipagmalaki ang Pilipinas. Pero wala eh. Doomed to be jologs ang bansang to.

    Alam ko marami pa ang umaasa at naniniwala sa pagbabago. Good luck and God bless! Sana tama kayo at mali ako. (KUNG SINO MAN ANG SUMULAT NITO, TAMANG-TAMA LAHAT ANG SINASABI MO!!! DAPAT ISAMPAL SA MGA MUKHA NG MGA POLITIKO ITO LALUNG-LALO NA IYANG SI PIMENTEL, HARI NG BALIMBING!!! AT ISA PA YANG SI RICHARD GOMEZ, NAGMAMARUNONG EH BOBO RIN NAMAN!!!)

    pinas eh mahilig sa kompetensya

  27. Napansin ko lang..
    Kala ko ba dapat alang pakialamanan ang
    church and government?
    Mula nung natuto akong manood at makinig
    ng balita (since tga province ako) eh, lagi nalang
    nakikialam ang church…db dapat nananahimik nalang
    sila at ipagdasal ang katahimikan ng ating bansa?
    db dapat pinapakita nalang nila na di lahat ng tao sa
    pinas eh mahilig sa kompetensya(as in “uhaw sa power-to-control-the-people”)? sa tingin ko eh sana nagiging modelo nalang ang simbahan..wag na kayong “makialam” sa scandal scandal na yan..

  30. depensor & pichay as well as the pro-gma are insisting that she did not cheat where in fact reading between the lines it very obvious that she did persuade her appointee garci to do the dagdag-bawas to the extent of warning to kidnap using lumibao and the rest. They are now liers, everyone of them, attempting to cover up the truth. not even the old good soldiers will dare declare and attest that gloria is clean because they know very well that she isn’t. no patriotic general will do it. In situation like this a good old soldier does not tell a lie, they prefer to keep silent. who wants to have an epitaph that says: “here lies a good old soldier who lies to cover-up a lier”

  31. kahit anong gawin nyo di magka2roon ng isang presidenteng matino dahil kanya kanyang bulok yan alm nyo yan…pero nlang kung tlagang may matinol na ang hangad nya dapat ay maging mabting presidente sa bansa at maiahon nya tayo sa krisis ngayon….na dinadanas natin ngayon….
